Las Vegas (February 23, 2023) — On Saturday, March 4, Indianapolis Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay will host a free exhibition of The Jim Irsay Collection, a traveling museum of iconic artifacts from rock music, American history and pop culture, at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

During the event, Irsay, an active philanthropist in Indiana and nationally, will present $25,000 donations to two Las Vegas nonprofits:

  • HELP of Southern Nevada, which provides assistance to low-income families, youth experiencing homelessness and others to become more self-sufficient. HELP assists tens of thousands of clients each year through various training programs including behavioral health services, family housing, holiday assistance and more.   For more info, visit
  • The Voices Project, which is dedicated to raising up the voices of people whose lives are affected by addiction. From direct outreach to civic and community engagement, it focuses on centering recovery and engaging people in advocacy in a vital and meaningful way. The project also works with thousands of Las Vegas recovery community members through its Mobilize Recovery program, which provides the recovery community the tools and resources to reach those still in the throes of addiction.
